Hofstra Roller Hockey Semester Wrap-Up



Hello, Hofstra Parents! My name is Craig Camara and I am an undergraduate assistant for the Office of Parent and Family Programs here at Hofstra University. I've probably talked to some of you on the phone or met you at some of our events throughout the almost two years I have worked in the parent and family office. I’m a Senior Marketing Major with an Information Technology minor. I am also a member of the Hofstra University Roller Hockey Team, one of the most prominent club sports on campus. The Roller Hockey Team, in addition to being ranked the #15 team in the nation, is also highly involved on-campus, giving back to Hofstra and the community. Here is what the team has done so far this semester and what the future holds.
The nationally ranked Hofstra Division I Roller Hockey Team wrapped up its first semester just last week with an outstanding record of 8-2. The team walks away from this semester of hockey with a hold on the #15 spot in the national rankings. Hofstra enjoyed wins over teams such as West Chester University, Temple University, Rhode Island University, Stony Brook University, Central Florida University, #17 ranked Northeastern University and Rowan University. Hofstra’s only losses came at the hands of #17 ranked Northeastern University and the #3 ranked Neumann University. Hofstra’s record puts the team in a good position to make a strong national championship run during next semester.

                  Hofstra’s scoring is led by Jeff Stern (12 goals, 17 assists), Mike Lasher (17 goals, 8 assists) and Pat Rosa (14 goals, 7 assists). All three players are native Long Islanders. In net, DI first-timer James Lauto has done his part in keeping the team in close games. Lauto’s 3.30 Goals Against Average and .829 Save Percentage have been more than enough to help the team win games.

                  In addition to the Division I team, Hofstra also has B division team as well; this is the team I play goalie for. Our B team possesses a 3-6 record, with all three wins coming against rival Stony Brook. The team has lost to many highly national-ranked teams such as Temple, West Chester and Northeastern. While the team may have a losing record at the halfway point, the B team is working hard and is eager to turn the season around and make a push for a regional championship.

                  In addition to successful play on the rink, the Roller Hockey Team has been involved with a lot of off-rick activities. During the most recent home weekend (The team plays at the SkateSafe Facility in Old Bethpage), both the DI team and the B team teamed up with rival Stony Brook to collect canned goods for those less-fortunate. In all, the teams collected over 1,000 pounds of canned goods and delivered them to food shelves around Long Island.

                  Coming up next semester, Hofstra will be hosting its annual St. Baldrick’s Day event, in which the team raises money to help find a cure for cancer. The team will be shaving their heads in solidarity with those who have to go through chemotherapy and also raising money to help support children going through the treatment. Last year, the team, along with its partners Hofstra Medical School and the Dean of Students Office, collected over $17,000! This year, the team is hoping to reach their $20,000 mark.
